Got privilege? If so, then the Los Angeles school system is about to vilify you. The course “Privilege 101” was just prepared and approved by the LA’s Unified School District’s Office of Human Relations, Diversity, and Equity.

“Privilege 101” is just the latest lesson in a laundry list to come out the LAUSD, including  “Critical Race Theory, Racism, and K-12 Education,” as well as “What is SCOTUS,” “Say Gay,” and “What Can We Do About Gun Violence?”

In this lesson, students will learn that there are various different types of privilege, including “white privilege,” “heterosexual privilege,” “religious privilege,” “gender privilege,” “cisgender privilege,” and “able-bodied privilege.”

Breitbart News reports: “The presentation went on to discuss the concept of intersectionality, claiming that ‘people may experience privilege in some areas but lack privilege in others.’ It noted that there are various identity categories, highlighting race, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, and gender identity.”

For those who fall into a privileged category, they are taught to be a “good ally” with tips including “understand your privilege” and “listen and do your homework.” It also reminds the students that “ally is a verb.”

Breitbart News previously revealed that LAUSD works with an organization to normalize child transgenderism. The nation’s second most populous school district has also teamed up with Planned Parenthood.

“The district has also hosted an LGBT club intended for four-year-olds and promoted the ‘two-spirit’ sexual identity. LAUSD even hosted Bianca Salvetti, a nurse practitioner from the Children Hospital LA’s Trans Youth Health and Development Department, to speak to members of the community” adds Breitbart News.

Hispanic Democrats ban term ‘Latinx’ used ‘to appease white rich progressives’

Lawmakers in Connecticut which are both Hispanic and Democrats, have proposed a new state law to ban the term “Latinx” from all government documents. The term is deemed offensive by the lawmakers who want to end the practice.

“I’m of Puerto Rican descent and I find it offensive,” Democratic state representative Geraldo Reyes told the Associated Press.

“The Spanish language, which is centuries old, defaults to Latino for everybody,” Reyes added. “It’s all-inclusive. They didn’t need to create a word, it already exists.”

Reyes is the bill’s chief sponsor, and was joined by four other Hispanic Democrats who are also members of then Black and Puerto Rican Caucus in the Connecticut Legislature.

The Connecticut lawmakers are not alone in their sentiment. In 2021, Democratic Representative Ruben Gallego of Arizona tweeted “When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use.” Gallego added that his office was not allowed to use the term in any official communications.  

National Review reports:

The same year, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the oldest community organization in the United States, declared it would no longer use Latinx. The term has also been rejected by Real Academia Española, a governing body that oversees the Spanish language.

While the term has been enthusiastically adopted by progressive academics and far-left activists, polling reveals it has not gained traction within the broader Hispanic population.

“The word Latino is incredibly exclusionary, both for women and for non-gender conforming people,” Maia Gil’adi, a professor at Boston University, told the AP. “And the term Latinx is really useful because of the way it challenges those conceptions.”
